    I have decided against doing the Midnight Pumpkin attempt as failure is always my way of things....

    So I will bring RCSPARKERS a Unique and different Shell for the SCX10 dingo/CF100 Kit.
    Unique as in Paint job as I do not think this has EVER been attempted in The Trailing world

    Clear Shell

    Before the trimming begins...

    [​IMG]
    As you can see in this pic the Wheel base is CLOSE.. a little rounding of the guards and it should be OK..
    I will have to trim the shells front bar. With this shell I don't want it to loose its Identity so I have moved the winch bar down to a lower point which will reduce
    Its off road ability a little... but thats why I made a custom bar mount so I can raise it for when I do competitive trailing and gain that extra centimetre of Front clearance...

    Leaving it in the high position means the grill will be removed far too much for my liking and the Ford badge will be buried behind the winch.. Not the intention of this shell..
    Its a trailing shell with style more then capability..

    So is the Paint Job !!!

    Its a 50/50 Paint Job as in the Main body is one color, the Lower Body has a Completely different color..
    Its not a Manly looking paint job... Think... Fast and Furious meets... Well... a Rainbow escaping a black hole or a Black hole swallowing a Rainbow Sparkler..

    Unfortunately I have had a few paint runs but thats the usually way things go when your applying 16 coats of paint..

    TA -DA !!!

    How it was done..
    Trimmed the shell out with Curved lexan scissors so I could do the wheel-guards just right..

    Placed the Trimmed shell onto the SCX10 and then made the necessary markings for clearing the Winch
    mount and then drilled some 6mm holes for the body posts checking everything was lined up before I made a single hole. Do this when the shell is CLEAR.. or else you risk ruining it
    Once I was happy to continue... WASHED the shell in WARM soapy water and and rinsed with clean cold water to remove any residue.
    Allowed the shell to air dry until dead dry.

    Masked up everything that I didnt want to have Lame Flake on Including the Tool box. Applied the supplied Window masks

    Then began with the lame flake applying 6 even coats to the entire shell allowing 20 minutes between coats.
    Using a Bright light, checked the coverage of the lame flake as it goes on nearly clear.
    Then Applied 2 covering coats of PS-5 Black... Allowing 15minutes between each coat.

    Next was to remove the masking from the wheel wells and lower half of the body and applied the Purple to green flip..
    Did 4 coats of it when I should have done 6... Then backed it with Black..Allowed to dry..
    Checked the paint coverage to make sure the shell was Black and no light was visible through the shell..

    Next was to remove the Masking tape from the Toolbox.. and sprayed it silver with 2 coats..
    Allowed to dry..

    Next was to remove the remaining window masks and the over spray film... Cut out the Decals and Apply them to the shell..

    Mounted up the shell and took Pics !!

    That looks pretty sweet. I love the metal flake, she really changes colors in the light it looks like. Good job. I can kinda see the blackhole and rainbow thing now but it looks alot better than the mental image I had lol think Greenie's wonderful dwarf pic above lol
